This workshop will be a face-to-face, interactive education in re-using 3D CAD models from design to manufacture. The workshop will be hosted by CADENAS PARTsolutions near their facility in the Los Angeles, CA metro area.

Attendees will learn what, why, and how Model-Based Definition (MBD) and Model-Based Engineering (MBE) will optimize your business processes and enable your digital enterprise. Our style is to educate you fast and simply while explaining model-based philosophy, commercial and government standards that address model-based issues, and available technology with the goal of normalizing MBE/MBD expectations for all your organization’s stakeholders. Day 1 focuses on business processes, rather than a particular CAD technology. Day 2 exposes all the necessary pieces of the digital enterprise puzzle and presents capabilities and maturity your organization needs to achieve MBE.

About the Instructor: Jennifer Herron, MSCE & BSME, is the CEO of Action Engineering, a registered Women-Owned Small Business. Ms. Herron regularly gives public seminars and consults on model-based topics and leads in-house MBD and MBE education seminars. She serves on the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) as chair of the ASME Y14.46 Product Definition for Additive Manufacturing, and is a committee member of ASME Y14.47 Model Organization Schema Practices and ASME Y14.37 Digital Product Definition for Composites. She is an expert in multiple CAD packages, such as Creo, NX, and SOLIDWORKS. In addition to her design of many flight satellite systems, Ms. Herron has designed military robot platforms, and has a patent for a snake propulsion mechanism. She is the author of “Re-Use Your CAD: The Model-Based CAD Handbook,” published in 2013.
